The Chilean Air Force says it has located debris believed to be from a cargo plane that crashed this week with 38 people aboard over a remote stretch of frigid sea between South America and the Antarctic. Adam Reed reports.
When most Chilean nurses finish their long shifts caring for the country's many COVID-19 patients, there is little else on their minds but seeing their families, eating and sleeping. Not so Damaris Silva, who twice a week when she finishes her shift at 6 p.m. picks up her violin and returns to the ward.
Every summer, algal blooms blanket parts of the Antarctica Peninsula's coast. Now, researchers say those blooms are likely to expand as climate change continues and Earth becomes progressively warmer. According to HuffPost, British scientists have put together the first large-scale map of green algae across the area. Green snow algae is found where summer temperatures are above freezing, but still cold enough for there to be snow.
Warming temperatures due to climate change are helping the formation and spread of “green snow” visible from space, according to new research led by Dr Matt Davey from Cambridge University. Rosanna Philpott reports.
